Morpurgo To Give Dimbleby Lecture

from The Daily Telegraph:

Michael Morpurgo, the author, will argue today that parents should be praised for putting their bonds with their child ahead of their career. He will also say that teachers should focus more on developing their relationships with children rather than constantly focusing on their pupils' grades. The author of more than 120 books, including War Horse and Why the Whales Came, is to deliver the 35th annual Richard Dimbleby Lecture today. In his speech entitled Set Our Children Free, to be broadcast on BBC One, Morpurgo, 67, will say that parents and teachers deserve more respect.
